Swiss Indoors, Basel

20.10.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The tennis event in Roger's home-town Basel is about to start, with our champ taking the third seeding. Roger's first opponent is Frenchman Adrian Mannarino (ATP 60), who he clearly beat at this year’s US Open. In the following round he will either meet 47-ranked Denis Istomin or 48-ranked Horacio Zeballos. Roger's designated semi-final opponent is Tomas Berdych (ATP 6).

“I’m just going to focus on trying to play well,” Roger said. “I’m not too focused on the points system. So I just got to move along. I can still finish strong. I believe I can and there’s not much time left. I’m looking forward to Basel now. That’s the next step for me, and hopefully that’s going to go well for me.”

To paraphrase a comment of a friend of mine " When Roger Roars, it is like Thunder"

Here's wishing that the St. Jakobs Halle will be thundering through the next week!

Shear: I am a big fan of the onehand backhand :) Kudos to Roger for keeping it alive!

Dearest Roger

Best of luck today in Basel!
I was pleasantly surprised to see that you are opening the tournament, because I had supposed it was going to be Del Potro.
You will shine in this tournament, I feel it, and I'm looking forward to Wednesday, when I'll be personally sitting in the St. Jakobs Halle roaring for you.

All my love to you as always.
